Role of Hospitals: Holy Cross Health

Silver Cross CBR cover

Holy Cross Health knows that there are thousands of men, women and children in their region that have no health insurance and few resources to obtain ongoing health services. At Holy Cross Health, a critical part of their work is to develop “safety net” services to help ensure that these residents don’t “fall through the cracks” in the health care system.

They have established community benefit programs to help residents obtain the care they need to maintain a healthy life and to give the next generation of their families a healthy start. They do this through offering three important safety net services including: health centers that provide patients with a medical home to access primary care; OB/GYN clinics to support women before, during and after the birth of a baby; and financial assistance programs and counselors to help reduce the financial burden that health care have on vulnerable families.
